Background: Hysterectomy can be performed with concomitant bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy to address symptomatic pathology of the ovarian glands or to avoid ovarian cancer. The purpose of our investigation was to investigate the connection between race and concomitant BSO by menopausal status in the Veteran Affairs health care system. Methods: This is a longitudinal review based on VA administrative data to identify hysterectomies delivered or paid for by VA between 2007 and 2014. To determine correlations of race with BSO by menopausal status and source of care, we used generalized linear models with a log-link and binomial distribution. Overall, Black Veterans were more likely to be single, obese, and have abdominal hysterectomy. After adjustment, pre-menopausal Black Veterans had a 41% lower risk of BSO than their White counterparts. The premenopausal Black veterans are less likely to experience BSO after adjusting for salient characteristics.
